CAIR Strikes Again!!!

 Airport adds foot basins for Muslim cabbies
Police worry about Kansas City ‘catering’ to Islamic rituals
April 28, 2007

foot-washing.jpgThe Kansas City International Airport has added several foot-washing basins in restrooms to accommodate a growing number of Muslim taxicab drivers who requested the facilities to prepare for daily Islamic prayer, WND has learned.

The move concerns airport police who worry about Middle Eastern men loitering inside the building. After 9/11, the airport beefed up its police force to help prevent terrorist attacks.

“Why are we constructing places of worship for them inside our airports?” said an airport official who requested anonymity. “Why are we catering to their rituals? We don’t do it for any other religion.”

Other major airports also are dealing with increased demands from Muslim cabdrivers.

For instance, cabbies at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport recently caused a stir when they refused to carry passengers possessing alcoholic beverages or accompanied by seeing-eye dogs. Alcohol is forbidden in Islam, and dogs are considered unclean.

There are approximately 250 taxicab drivers operating at KCI Airport in Missouri, one of the largest airports in the U.S., linking some 10 million passengers between mid-America and other U.S. cities. Approximately 70 percent of the drivers are of Middle Eastern heritage and practice the Islamic faith, sources say.

KCI Airport Police are responsible for the cab drivers, including the holding areas of the building. The KCI Aviation Department, which oversees the police, recently expanded the taxicab facility restroom area to include the construction of four individual foot-washing benches.

The cost of the project is not immediately known. A spokeswoman for the engineering department said she could not break out the figures.

KCI Airport Police Capt. Jim Harmon declined comment, explaining, “This is a touchy subject.”

He referred questions to the KCI Aviation Department.

In a cleansing ritual known as ablution, Muslims are required to wash their feet before praying to Allah five times a day. They often complain that public restroom sinks do not accommodate their needs. Floor-level basins make it easier for them to perform their foot-washing ritual.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has pressed government agencies and businesses to install the foot basins in restrooms.

The controversial Muslim lobby group advises employers to allow Muslim workers time to perform both the washing ritual and prayer, which “is usually about 15 minutes,” according to a pamphlet CAIR publishes called, “An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices.”

The Islamic purification ritual, known in Arabic as “wudu,” involves a 10-step process, which includes:

1. Praising Allah while washing both hands up to the wrist three times, making sure that the water reaches between fingers and under rings.

2. Rinsing out the mouth thoroughly three times, using the right hand (the one not used for cleaning private parts) to bring the water to the mouth.

3. Snorting water into the nostrils from the right hand, three times, to cleanse them of demons that Muslims believe reside there, clearing the passages of any mucous using the left hand.

4. Washing off the tip of the nose with the left hand.

5. Washing the entire face three times from right ear to left ear.

6. Continuing to wash from forehead to throat.

7. Washing the right arm and then the left arm, three times, from the wrist up to the elbow, removing watches.

8. Moving wetted palms over the head from the top of the forehead to the back of the head.

9. Passing the wetted tips of the fingers into the grooves and holes of both ears, and also passing the wetted thumbs behind the ears and ear lobes.

10. Finally, washing both feet to the ankles starting with the right foot, including between the toes, then reciting: “Ash-hadu an la ilaha illal lahu wa ashhadu anna Muammadan ‘abduhu wa rasuluh” – meaning there is no god but Allah and he has no partners, and Muhammad is his servant and messenger.

    I think I am going to throw up.

    You swine have made the lovely velvet sick, I declare a fatwa on you all.

    I fly fairly often and will now avoid KS; I wouldn’t want muslim foot fungus to harm my delicate skin.

    I do call for the airport to issue new scarves for the muslim females with the airport logo on them. Allow them all time off for standard holidays and all muslim ones, also let them have the entire month of ramadan off with pay please. If you are going to isolate one small portion of your community to suck up too then by all means go all out. I almost forgot- you should have only born again Christians wipe their feet and towel dry their hands, ears and other body parts. After all foot washing is found in the Bible and it shows your tolerance. Please forgive in advance any accidental destruction of non muslim icons and remove any churches the drivers will have to travel close enough to see from the road. Better yet- build at taxpayer expense muslim only roads. Thanks you ever so much,

    Thank you kind Ronin, for defending my infidel honor.

    Priceless! Every last bit! All the way down to muslim only roads.

    Seriously though, I feel as if we are living a waking nightmare.

    I could just spit nails!


    Even if I wanted to be a Muslim I don’t think I could handle it. So many things to do and remember. Even Hitler and Stalin had less rules for their people to abide by. Anyone considering converting to Islam must have rocks in their head or is highly anal retentive.

  7. Quite a washing ritual, huh? What are they trying to wash away?

  8. velvethammer Says:

    Always On Watch

    It seems that they concern themselves with the dreaded nostril demons. There is a joke here, but I am to much of a lady to say it. LOL

    “3. Snorting water into the nostrils from the right hand, three times, to cleanse them of demons that Muslims believe reside there, clearing the passages of any mucous using the left hand.”

    What a crock… I think we should push for a “holy water” basin right next to it, or even better, a BIG Cross.

  10. Ronin Says:

    Robert you are on the right track. Pooring holy water into the basin would be a better idea. It might burn thier feet.

  11. Blackdog Says:

    Holy water my @SS! I say we pour sulfuric acid in there. That will really clean the nose buggers and toe jam!

    I worked at a large, international bank for a year, that liked to hire pakis. I would see this ritual (except the foot washing) every friggin day.

    My dog, which licks her own genitals, is about 200 times cleaner than these disgusting pigs. They are absolutely the grossest people I have every seen. Far worse than migrant workers from Mexico (who I am pretty sure have never seen indoor plumbing before getting here).

    That is the irony, I guess of them having to identify things that are more ‘unclean’ than them. Who thinks like that, unless they are basically foul themselves.

    I am very short…..wash basins on the floor sound to this short man like a urinal……maybe I will go to st paul and pee in the airport…
